Extended Event Handler Application

Dave Mason whipped up an application to track when a particular extended event fires:

Event Responses: when an event is handled, specify how you want to respond to it. In the “Event Responses” section, there are two options: play a system sound or send email (you must choose at least one option). Pick the system sound desired and/or enter an email address.

Dave has made the source code available as well so you can extend the functionality.
